NASHVILLE – Nashville SC returns to action on Tuesday, hosting Minnesota United FC at 7:30 p.m., CDT, in a match that welcomes back fans at Nissan Stadium for the first time since Feb. 29.
The stadium capacity will be limited to 10 percent total occupancy on Tuesday, primarily consisting of Nashville SC First String MLS Founding Members. The club has adjusted the seating charts to reflect best social distancing practices and will follow Nissan Stadium’s Safe Stadium Plan. The three additional home matches in October could allow up to 15 percent capacity.
Entering its 15th league game this season, Nashville has amassed a 4W-3L-5D record and six shutouts since returning to Major League Soccer action on Aug. 12. Nashville SC currently holds a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference as the team rides a five-match unbeaten streak at Nissan Stadium. The club’s last loss came in the home opener against Atlanta United FC on Feb. 29.
Nashville SC Goalkeeper Joe Willis set a career-high in shutouts in a season after earning his sixth clean sheet of the season over the weekend. Nashville as a team has allowed just 14 goals and is now tied with Seattle Sounders FC (2009) for the fewest goals allowed by an MLS expansion club through 14 matches.
Our first match in front of our fans since Feb. 29.
